April 13, 2011— -- There's much more to Will and Kate than his sexy search-and-rescue uniform and her fabulous feather fascinators and fine fashion sense.

Where did this fairy tale couple come from? What makes a future king? And how did she nab her prince?

To find out, check out ABC News' video book "A Modern Fairy Tale: William, Kate, and Three Generations of Royal Love," by New York Times bestselling author Jane Green, on your iPad, Kindle, or other ereader.

Green, a Brit who has penned a cool dozen chick lit novels, including "Jemima J," "The Beach House," and "The Other Woman," tells the story of how Prince William and Kate Middleton grew up, fell in love, and got engaged. She also delves into the history of William's parents, Prince Charles and Princess Diana, and his grandparents, Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip; their love stories and their historic weddings.

In researching the book, Green was surprised by what she calls the "extraordinary love story" of the Queen and Prince Philip.

"She fell in love with him at 13 years old, they corresponded for years when she was a school girl, and then their parents allowed them to marry when she was 21."

Love stories are not the norm for royal marriages, Green points out, but Prince William and Kate Middleton are lucky to be living their own love story, just like his grandparents.

Relive all the fairytale moments with video clips from the extensive ABC News archives, dozens of striking images of the royals, and cool interactive elements. This experience turns the page on royal storytelling.

You can buy "A Modern Fairy Tale: William, Kate, and Three Generations of Royal Love" everywhere enhanced ebooks are sold.

Don't miss Jane Green on "Good Morning America" Thursday April 14.
